Finally, after 117 days in the quarantine in Taman Safari Indonesia (TSI) 7 Sumatran Laughingtrushes and 12 Javan Green Magpies left their country, on October 22nd 2015 at 11.35 am to England. They travelled around 38 hours, all are fine and the most started to feed immediately.
TSI supported the CCBC (Cikananga Conservation Breeding Center) and made the export possible with their international quarantine.
"I’d like to express my deepest thanks to all of you who have been involved with this very important and challenging importation." (Andrew Owen)
And I`m very proud to know one of the critically endangered species is safe and in good hands. I`m glad I was part of this project.
